Mark jumped many bridges and hoops to make this sale happen, including finding another buyer to help make it happen.

– Brad F. (March 22, 2022)

Had an excellent experience with Mark Anderson of National Land Realty - he worked really hard for me and got very good results. If you have land to sell in this area, list it with Mark.

– Dave B. (November 24, 2021)

Mark is indispensable in both land and timber management. He brings tremendous knowledge and experience to the table, and I greatly appreciate his assistance. I recommend him highly!

– C. B. (November 18, 2021)

Mark Anderson with National Land Realty in Hattiesburg, MS was a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the whole land buying and selling process. As a fellow forester, I can assure you that he knows his stuff when it comes to buying or selling a tract of land for growing timber or recreational hunting purposes. Mark helped me through the process to purchase a tract of land that was for sale in a complicated family estate settlement. Mark was able to see the deal through and I was able to close on the property on time. Mark is very professional and trustworthy, you won't be disappointed!

We will definitely use him in the future for any of our real estate purchases or sales.
